We've learned a lot about Ellen over the years, but today she shared something we'd never heard. Mostly because Ellen had never heard it either.

What does coming out really mean? Do people ever go back in after they come out and is that ok? It seems while some go out others go in. Like the seasons sort of. Does Ellen like guys ever? She is funny

The Language of Liverpool
After I watched the clip on you nickname, I found this:

The first thing to be aware of is that Liverpool people speak very fast. If you can get them to slow down, you might be able to understand what they're saying. Here are a few Liverpool slang expressions that might help you break the ice.

Tilly Mint: This is an endearing admonishment used for a female Scouser who has ideas above her station. The male equivalent is '****y Mint'.

Hi Ellen Tilly Mint is an English (Liverpudlian ask Paul Mc cartney or Ringo) term of say cut it out etc. such as listen here Tilly Mint or who do you think you are Tilly Mint ? It is not derogatory in any way. ****ie Mint is a character (Diddyman) who works in the jam butty mines in knotty ash for comedian Ken Dodd. Not a joke you tube ken Dodd's diddymen.

No worries , Ellen. Tilly Mint is no longer there. I do question them listing an appearance on Johnny Carson, in 1962. Were you doing stand up when you were four?

I am from Liverpool area in the UK and can confirm that Tilly Mint means
"Scouse term of endearment. Female equivalent of '****ie Mint'". Basically, a nice nickname for a cheeky little girl. Sounds like you ??? The English comedian Ken Dodd also has a puppet called ****y Mint, could Tilly Mint be his sister? A sort of chip off the block? You will find ****y Mint on you tube.
If you have not heard of "Scouse" it is the Liverpool accent, as The Beatles talk!

Were Tilly Mint comes from:
It is a character in a book:
http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/d/berlie-doherty/tilly-...

But why someone thinks that's your nickname? Well, it is the internet...
An important thing about the internet is the fact that it is a huge source of information, but not a reliable source of knowledge!
Thanks for your shows! Yours Lia A. Eastwood
